“First Lady Michelle Obama represents the spirit of today’s African-American mother, wife and champion of change. Her ability to embrace the role of first lady while shaping a positive image of the African-American family is an impressive where she continues to excel,” states Upscale Publisher Shelia Bronner. “Mrs. Obama is reflected in this issue as a relatable public figure who is genuinely concerned for the welfare of our nation and world; leaving imprints of encouragement and warm embraces of hope to everyone, she meets. We are honored to be apart of her-story and to share it with our readers.”
In the October Upscale cover story, entitled “National Treasure,” Michelle Obama opens up to Spelman College graduates about her life as a young black girl in the Southside of Chicago “Some of you may have grown up like me, in neighborhoods where few had the chance to go to college,” explained Mrs. Obama, who prefers to be called Michelle.
The cover story will also detail the impact Mrs. Obama has had on fashion, reasons for her style choices. The story will also reflect her comparison to previous first ladies, including Jacqueline Kennedy. The feature also covers Mrs. Obama as a wife and mother, coining the term mom-in-chief, highlighting the Obama’s ability to bring a positive image back to the black family.
In addition to this historical October cover story, the magazine will also feature the top 50 Historically Black Colleges and Universities and a first hand look into homelessness.
